Our home

Welcome to our home which is warm, cozy and very inviting! We built our house in 2006 on a large plot of 1.5 acres and its approx 2,700 sqft. We have stunning views which you will enjoy whilst relaxing in the conservatory. Downstairs we have a large sitting room with solid fuel stove, large flat screen TV and views over the Burren, this leads to the playroom/computer room which houses every board game you can think of! The kitchen is open plan with all the mod cons and a dining area and leads to the conservatory which has access to the patio area where you will find garden table and chairs and an gas-fueled BBQ. There is also a double bedroom and en-suite downstairs (with walk in shower) as well as a large utility. Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms, 2 with en-suites (1 with a bath) and a single bedroom. Our home is luxurious and comfortable. Outside, we have well kept gardens all around the house, a patio area and a large trampoline with safety net. There is ample room to play games, football and run around and explore.

We also have fast internet access/WiFi/SKY TV/Wii and lots of bikes you can use to explore the area.

Who we are

  1. Hi, my name is Bridget, I'm married to Pete and we have 2 girls Katie (15) and Hannah (12). We did our first exchange in 2012 in France which was a great experience so we are hoping to arrange another adventure for 2013. We have a beautiful home which we know you will enjoy the tranquility of the countryside and the convenience of exploring the many pleasures in Galway. We would like to exchange with a house close to the beach/sea. We would be very respectful of your property. We are non-smokers.
